Alcohol drinking and blood alcohol concentration revisited.

Summary of "Alcohol drinking and blood alcohol concentration revisited."

It is widely assumed that the amount of alcohol in the blood reflects the amount of alcohol consumed. However, several factors in addition to amount of alcohol consumed can influence blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The current study examines the effect of alcohol dose, concentration, and volume on BAC in rats with a high alcohol drinking (HAD) phenotype.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Substances interfering with the metabolism of ethyl alcohol, causing unpleasant side effects thought to discourage the drinking of alcoholic beverages. Alcohol deterrents are used in the treatment of alcoholism.

Alcohol consumption among college students.

Behaviors associated with the ingesting of alcoholic beverages, including social drinking.

Mass of alcohol per unit of BLOOD volume.

A carbamate derivative used as an alcohol deterrent. It is a relatively nontoxic substance when administered alone, but markedly alters the intermediary metabolism of alcohol. When alcohol is ingested after administration of disulfiram, blood acetaldehyde concentrations are increased, followed by flushing, systemic vasodilation, respiratory difficulties, nausea, hypotension, and other symptoms (acetaldehyde syndrome). It acts by inhibiting aldehyde dehydrogenase.
